* Believe it or not, this actually happens to official works as well. One example is the comic book ''ComicBook/NinjaHighSchool'' which is so chock full of characters, the creators don't bother to explain who they are (they have short explanation for the current characters at the start of their issues. But not for everyone). So you can imagine how confused a newcomer would be when they would come in in the middle of the story. Fellow comic ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' avert this with its annual sourcebooks explaining important character and their roles in the story.

* Creator/{{Cactus}}'s "games" page was [[https://web.archive.org/web/20121010044841/http://cactusquid.com/games.htm outdated]] for a long time, listing games only up to 2008; you had to comb through the guy's blog to download, or even find out about any later games he made. It was eventually updated in 2013.

* WebAnimation/HomestarRunner's "First Time Here?" video might count, since two of the things it recommends checking out first are among the oldest material on the site, and the third (the Strong Bad Emails) just happens to have been continually updated ever since around that time and remained the main feature of the site -- to the point where the real question is knowing which ones to watch first. At this point, an entire playlist of specific cartoons is probably recommended [[ContinuityLockout just to get caught up on the most commonly called-back-to material]].

* Some authors avoid this by setting up a wiki for comic, which takes the load off the author's shoulders, and directs the fandom's creative energies so the Wikipedia isn't quite so full of Fictional Character Biographies. For example, ''[[Webcomic/{{Starslip}} Starslip Crisis]]'' or the four {{Walkyverse}} comics. Of course, this can fail too--the {{Walkyverse}} wiki, for example, gets a ''lot'' less detailed dealing with events post-2007, if they're mentioned at all, and as a result of this many newer characters don't even have stub pages.

* {{Lampshaded}} in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0649.html this]] ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' comic, which goes to new extremes to [[BreakingTheFourthWall Demolish the Fourth Wall.]] The FAQ page for the site is still horribly outdated, though.
